HOPE FOR NEW YORK
St. Paul's House
The West Side

St. Paul's House is an independent mission house serving hungry New Yorkers and satisfying souls since 1945.  St. Paul’s House offers food programs as well as job training, transitional housing, and discipleship programs to men who are experiencing homelessness or addiction issues. 

Mission: To feed hungry New Yorkers and satisfy souls. Through a combination of hands on teaching, biblical education, and social awareness, St. Paul's House is a stepping-stone for practical learning and application in serving the physically and spiritually poor.

Vision: To generate a culture of biblical discipleship and send out tomorrow's leaders who will create more disciples in the communities they serve. St. Paul's House sees broken men, women and children returning as productive members to society equipped with the spiritual strength and tangible resources to avoid further pitfalls.

OUR PARTNERSHIP
Our volunteers serve breakfast, build relationships with and lead a devotion time with guests, and set-up and clean-up for the soup kitchen and food pantry. Volunteers also assist with youth programs and movie nights.
Our funding helps cover the costs of nutritious meals for guests, kitchen supplies (including a commercial stove and refrigerators), other soup kitchen materials, and a gospel-centered youth group curriculum.
Our capacity building has helped to provide strategic planning, board development, leadership development and fund development projects.

“To me when someone said they loved me it meant they wanted something from me. The love I experienced was ugly and life was overwhelming. When I came to St. Paul's House I was overcome, I was moved. They were speaking about a different kind of love. And this love had an effect of me— it was God's and it touched me. I not only heard it but I saw it through the staff and volunteers; it was pure, sincere, genuine, and loyal. I feel like I am a part of a family— a loving one.”
